Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Let r = (5 - sqrt(5))/2 and s = (5 + sqrt(5))/2. Then 1/r + 1/s = 1, so that A249115 and A003231 are a pair of complementary Beatty sequences. Let tau = (1 + sqrt(5))/2, the golden ratio. Let R = {h*tau, h >= 1} and S = {k*(tau - 1), k >= 1}. Then A003231(n) is the position of n*tau in the ordered union of R and S. The position of n*(tau - 1) is A249115(n). - Clark Kimberling, Oct 21 2014

This is the function named c in the Carlitz-Scoville-Vaughan link. - Eric M. Schmidt, Aug 06 2015
